Bushel of Macs from Leslie Heffron

A lovely note from GMG FOB Leslie Heffron:

Hi Joey –

Here’s a painting I did of apples. I wanted to share it with Kim in response to her “Apple Pie Centrale” photo. Apple pie is my favorite to make!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all the contributors of the blog. I appreciate all you do for the community!

Leslie

Thank you Leslie for your thoughtful note and for sharing your beautiful painting!!

4th Submission in the Series “Show Me Yours and I’ll Show You Mine”

Hi Paul;
Saw your post on GMG- here’s a shot of my studio. I love to use Prismacolor pencils, Liquitex acrylics, and Windsor Newton oils.  My favorite colored pencil is indigo blue and my favorite oil paint color is Prussian blue.
Right now I’m working on a colored pencil series, “Love Letters to Gloucester” some of which can be seen on my studio wall. I’m drawn to imagery with text, luminosity, and color and have looked to the paintings of Ed Ruscha, David Hockney, Edward Hopper, Nell Blaine, and Richard Diebenkorn for my inspiration.
I’ll be in the upcoming show, “Art @ Bass Rocks” which opens on May 31 from 6-8 P.M. Hope to see the FOB there!
My website is: http://www.leslieheffron.com. I hope you enjoy my paintings and drawings!

Thanks!  Leslie

Leslie Heffron Has Some Nice Things to Say

Leslie writes-

Hi Joey and all the GMG Contributors – I want to thank all of you for  the hard work you do to produce your blog.  A year ago I accidentally came across the GMG logo when I was on The Gloucester Times online.  I immediately loved the seagull with the sunrise visual and  the name of the blog.  Then when I saw the image of Good Harbor beach I was totally hooked!  I lived in Gloucester 10 years and have now been living down in PA for almost 20, but I miss Gloucester and hope to move back someday.  So until then you keep me informed of all the great events happening in your beautiful city by the sea!  Thanks so much!  Leslie Heffron

Leslie Heffron Dancing Sea Star Buoy Colored Pencil Drawing

Leslie Writes-

Thank you!  I’m an artist so after I read the blog for the first time I did a colored pencil drawing and have been working on a series called "Love Letters to Gloucester"  ever since.  This drawing is called, "Dancing Sea Star Buoy" and it’s based on a buoy I found washed up on Niles Beach.  Leslie
